Today I am grateful for flowering trees. There are not nearly as many flowering trees in Wisconsin, where I grew up, but Pennsylvania makes up for it. Spring is always so gorgeous that sometimes we drive around marveling at the beauty.
Then I come home, sniffly and asthmaee, with itchy, sandpaper eyes and sometimes a raging headache and I wonder when the blasted things will finally be done so that I can breathe and see again. This has been a particularly long and hateful season. That started in January!
For allergy sufferers, the beauty of Spring always has a flip side! It’s still pretty. From beyond my window. We have the air conditioning on. And it isn’t even May 1st.
